A vaginoplasty is an elective surgical procedure that tightens the vagina by removing excess vaginal tissue and tightening the surrounding muscles. A non-surgical alternative to a vaginoplasty is the CO2RE Intima.
After childbirth, women may complain of vaginal laxity. During delivery of a baby, the vagina and surrounding tissues and muscles become stretched. After delivery, the vagina will return to a more “normal” size, but it often fails to return to its’ pre-pregnancy diameter. Many women will complain of decreased sensation and sexual satisfaction during intercourse. Commonly this is due to a lack of friction. Kegel exercises are often recommended but rarely succeed in restoring vaginal tightness.
Vaginoplasty surgery will tighten the vagina and surrounding tissues yielding a vaginal tightness similar to before the patient had children.
We have also had numerous patients who feel loose although they have never had children. On physical exam, they indeed had a vaginal diameter that was greater than expected. Vaginoplasty surgery can help these women as well.
